Perfect white is the color every housewife wants her clothes to be. Snowy white is such a wonderful shade, right? It is the ideal color for all our white clothes and sheets. Unfortunately, white clothes lose their color overtime and turn into pale gray or even yellow!
This is the worst nightmare that could happen to those who enjoy wearing their favorite white shirt or dress.
There is only one question to be asked – how to restore the freshness of our white laundry and make white even whiter?
If you are thinking of trying synthetic bleach, we have some bad news for you. It will only make things worse. Your clothes will end up all thinned out and yellow.
How to get your white clothes back again?
There are some amazing natural combinations that can help you solve the problem, and it is too pity that your grandmother has not shared this secret with you, as the natural bleacher we are about to recommend has been used since ancient times.
You do not need any expensive bleachers and you do not have to spend a fortune on buying top branded laundry products.
Sometimes an old and trusted combination can do the trick. Have you considered trying potassium permanganate? It is a ‘must’ when it comes to laundry whitening, and you will be pretty pleased with the results.
How to use potassium permanganate on your white clothes?
The first thing you gonna need to do is buy some potassium pomegranate, of course. Then, add a few crystals to 10 liters of water. You should get a pink solution. Putting too much potassium permanganate will not make things better, and dark purple color is definitely the color you are after. Stir 200 grams of your detergent into the solution.
Your whitening combination is ready. Soak your white laundry in the liquid and cover it with a nylon bag. Soak your clothes in for at least 4-5 hours, but overnight is much better. The solution may have a unattractive shade, but you should not worry.
After your clothes have been soaked in for 4-5 hours or overnight, transfer them to your laundry machine and wash them as you usually do.
You can do the same process in the opposite way – first wash your clothes than soak them in the solution. If you are doing things this way, all that remains to be done is rinsing and hanging your clothes. Repeat the whitening procedure if needed until you are satisfied with your white and shiny bright clothes. You will be more than happy with the results, and everyone in your home will appreciate our effort.
Extra tip: Baking soda also gives some amazing results when it comes to whitening clothes. You will also save your money, as it is super cheap and affordable.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda to your regular detergent. Baking soda has some other benefits as well. It reduces the hardness of the water, and makes your detergent even more powerful. Many women prefer using baking powder instead of synthetic bleachers. Just add some baking powder to the same compartment with your regular detergent and watch your clothes turn white again.
We hope that these tips will be of great help in your home. Share them with your friends and enjoy wearing your white dress again.
